R9 Supertri driver head

17 posts in this topic

So yesterday I was at the course and I walked into the trees to use the facilities only to see a clubhead laying in the leaves. So I pick it up and it's a 10.5 R9 Supertri driver head. I've not looked at any of the adjustable TM drivers but it seems that someone tossed the head into the woods after the shaft broke or something but there is no remnants of the shaft at all. It Looks like the shaft would be held in by a screw or something through the bottom of the club? Just curious if this would be worth selling without a shaft or if I should just try to get a shaft for it? Or, just toss it in the trash?

You'll probably only get around $20 for it.

Or maybe even inquire/turn it in to the clubhouse?  Possibly someone could be wondering where in the hell their driver head dissappeared to.....

Or possibly, it's cracked somewhere and was tossed for a reason.

I doubt someone is wondering where it is because of where I found it isn't near where it could be accidentally lost, but it is possible there is a crack maybe. I've looked it over pretty well and there are no visible issues.

A weird story . But I wish I was as Lucky as you are, the R9 supertri stays my favourite driver 's head of all times, and I Keep playing it those days. I broke two of them from 2010 (the metal breaks on the crown, as it often does with big hitters)  so I m still in search for best price good condition Supertri heads. Though my last one is still in good shape. I ll certainly buy one or two more as it becomes tougher to find in very good condition here in France.

My thinking is that TM was at his peak with the making of this head, and none of the followers are even better, for me as I tried all of them as a Demoman for an other OEM.

The only issue is the fragility that pertains to all R9 heads.

Opinions???

What kind of shape is it in? I'd be interested in it. Or I've got a couple shafts I'd sell you for it for a good price. 1 steel True Temper XL Lite and 1 Aldila VS Proto 70s.

I would probably just send it to you for the price of shipping, don't feel right selling something I found to anyone in case there is some sort of internal issue with it. From the face wear it seems like the owner hit some pretty fat shots and that may have caused a snapped shaft, hard to tell though.

I love this driver, I have two of them set up identical. I have tried the newer ones and they are no better maybe worse for me, so for less than $100 on ebay for replacements I'll stick with this model for sure.

Not a problem, like I said, I have no idea if there are any internal problems so I wouldn't feel right taking money for it. Just let me know if it was any good when you get a chance to use it :beer:

Good for him then, haha, it's doing nothing but sitting around now. Better that he gets it and it works perfectly for free than to pay and it's busted.

    • This will happen to me when I have the optimal club release. My distance hog is that I don't release the club well into the ball, and I kind of just pull it through. It works, but when I relax and get a good swing with a great controlled release through my hands I can feel the difference and it does go MUCH farther. 
    • A couple of videos and pictures from Turnberry yesterday - didn't play brilliantly, but managed +12 in serious wind, particularly on the front nine. Putting was hard with the new greens and I three putted twice on the front nine for the first time in ages. I also found it very hard in the wind and kept trying to fight it, overthinking things rather than sticking to what I was comfortable with. As a result, I only really found my game with a few holes to play. Highlights were a birdie on the par 5 eighth, an awesome drive on the 10th, which I got on camera, and making the Tom Watson 2009 up and down, having gone over the back as well from near the plaque . The course itself was incredible - the greens haven't yet fully settled in and so there are different speeds all over the place, but it's such a good test. If you don't find the fairway, you can't score.   Very short swings due to crazy amount of wind! Fourth green - with the wind, you have to start the ball off the left of it, pretty much on the ocean...: Second shot into the 7th green. Didn't make the putt (story of the day!): View from the new championship tee for the 9th: Panoramic view from the 10th green. Arguably the most scenic par five anywhere: My Tom Watson 2009 moment captured (sort of - plaque, tee shot and where my 6 iron over the back finished up): Not worth the money, I don't think - hard for it to ever be the case at the price, but I loved every minute of it. It's a great course and deserves to have the Open back soon. Western Gailes today and hopefully my swing is on better form!

    • Count me in. Charlotte is only about an hour away for me, which is no problem.
    • I hit whatever the current TM model was in the spring but really like the AP1's. But I'll do a proper unbiased fitting and see what the results are as in both instances for iron fittings, it's been done by Titleist reps.
